The Leica Lux app offers a fully automatic mode, which is similar to Apple’s native camera app, and also includes an “Aperture mode.” This mode uses software to replicate the distinctive style and bokeh effect of high-end lenses such as the Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH and the vintage Noctilux-M 50mm f/1.2 ASPH from 1966.

The company noted that around 80 per cent of its camera users also own an iPhone, making Leica Lux a way to deliver a Leica-inspired experience directly to their devices.

“With the takeover of Fjorden we have united the expertise of two drivers of technological innovation and have expanded our already strong mobile imaging development team by the integration of proven specialists and digital know-how. We have expanded our digital ecosystem in the camera, mobile and optical segments with a product range that above all addresses younger target groups and enables them to take their first steps on their journey to the world of Leica products. Our first jointly-developed camera app, ‘Leica LUX’ brings the Leica experience and the unmistakeable visual signature to the iPhone’,” Matthias Harsch, CEO of Leica Camera AG, said in a statement.
